ASU cancels study abroad programs in South Korea due to coronavirus fears

PHOENIX — Arizona State University canceled its study abroad programs in South Korea after the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention elevated the country’s coronavirus warning, the university announced Wednesday

The CDC recently designated the coronavirus’ presence in South Korea as a Level 3 Warning, encouraging travelers to forgo all nonessential travel to the country, according to the agency’s website.

For ASU students already in South Korea, the university is working to formulate the necessary travel arrangements to ensure their safe return home.

ASU currently has no plans to cancel its study abroad programs in Europe, but the university “will continue to closely monitor COVID-19 updates and will respond accordingly,” a spokesman said in an email.
